By his own admission, D.W. Moffett started taking acting courses after graduating from Stanford University with a degree in International Relations for the same reason many men enter the profession--to meet women. But his whimsical hobby soon became a full-time occupation, first via acclaimed stage work and then in the form of regular film and TV roles. His first big break was a starring role in the CBS cop drama "The Oldest Rookie," alongside Paul Sorvino, in 1987 and 1988. Parts on the dramas "Palace Guard" and "Crossing Jordan" were two other important TV milestones for Moffett, but the biggest opportunity arrived in 1998 in the form of a regular series role on the NBC sitcom "For Your Love," starring Holly Robinson Peete. A decade later, Moffett scored again with another pair of long-running parts on the 2007 CW dramas "Hidden Palms" and "Life Is Wild." Along with later work on the acclaimed TV football drama "Friday Night Lights," Moffett also shared in an ensemble acting award for his small role in the lauded 2000 feature crime saga "Traffic." Following that success, Moffett has had occasional big-screen roles in addition to his prolific TV activity, most notably in Catherine Hardwicke's cautionary teenage tale "Thirteen," the quirky Zach Galifianakis dramedy "Visioneers," and the raucous Jonah Hill comic romp "The Sitter."
